Pronto was one of the proud sponsors of Deakin University’s Think Tank Challenge event held in September. Hosted by Deakin Commerce Society and Deakin Business School, the challenge was designed to encourage students to come up with innovative solutions to real life business problems.
Working in teams of four, students were given a business problem along with basic statistics to reiterate how big of a problem they were facing. The challenge gave millennials a fantastic opportunity to address a real life business challenge, working with innovative solutions to solve the business problem encountered.
A different way of thinking and approaching workplace issues
It was incredibly valuable to be part of Deakin’s Think Tank Challenge, not only to support our country’s future leaders, but to give us a real insight as to how those making up the workforce in the years to come, think and approach workplace issues. Seeing the students articulating their solutions gave us a broader picture of their expectations from a workplace.
Events such as this one encourage students to work together in teams, where they interact and discuss all views before moving on to shape the best possible solutions. Brainstorming on different perspectives encourages collaboration, driving innovation. These new skills prove priceless as they prepare to embark on their professional careers.
